Background

Ayse Indemaio graduated from the University of Texas McCombs School of Business. Indemaio is a former Risk Analyst and Gas, NGL & Global Operations Trade Control Analyst with BP before eventually becoming a stay at home mom [2]. Indemaio runs a website called TexasMessengers.com highlighting CFISD teachings and practices she finds to be harmful. She also actively speaks at monthly school board meetings, meets with crime stoppers, and actively meets with Texas lawmakers regarding CFISD school policies and teachings. She has also been a parent volunteer since 2017 and a Girl Scout troop leader since 2020 [1].

Key Issues

Parent Involvement

Indemaio wants to increase parent involvement by expanding parental control over what is deemed appropriate in schools.

Teachers

Indemaio would like to amplify teacher’s voices through the school board. She hopes to increase teacher involvement regarding the administration of CFISD [1].

Curriculum

Indemaio says administrators at a CFISD high school planned to show a video that had an “implicit bias” against white males. She attended a CFISD board meeting to express concerns over what she says are elements of critical race theory in the district’s schools [4].

School Safety

Indemaio is a supporter of a HB-18, a Texas State legislation which increases parental control on children’s information and the transfer of electronic devices to students by a public school, as she believes that data mining on children is occurring in CFISD [1]. The bill requires minors to gain parental consent before creating new online accounts, and online service providers to censor harmful content to minors. Opponents of the bill find harmful content to be subjective to deem [5].

Miscellaneous

She helped suspend the No Place for Hate Program in CFISD, claiming the anti-bullying program socially shamed children, was divisive, and of questionable sources [6].
